World(press) Amazing Race! #TeamElephant

Amazing Race Players

The World(press) Amazing Race, started by Cyranny, my blogger sis to the north in Canada, is in full swing and all the players have homes…for now!

I am Captain of #TeamElephant who is now known as ELI E. ELEPHANT (and the E stands for EVER!)

Team Elephant

Eli has been chillin’ here in Tucson. Our less than stellar weather has kept us in for most of his time here. But we passed the time…me writing and Eli whining about it.

Mister Elephant on the desk

So I made him his own playlist – Eli’s Eclectic Euphonious Mix – which includes the Eagles, Earth, Wind & Fire, Eddie Money, Eddie Rabbit, Eddie Kendricks, Elton John, Emmylou Harris, Electric Light Orchestra, Evanescence, Eurythmics, Enrique Iglesias, En Vogue, Erykah Badu, Edwin McCain, Etta James, and Josh Groban! (Okay, that last one may have been for me!)


Eli also had the chance to have an in-depth discussion on the societal stigmas of The Phantom of the Opera with Diego, the Wonder Horse, and Prissy Bear. Things became quite heated when they discussed whether or not the Phantom was a true existentialist. Diego, the Wonder Horse insisted he is, but Eli repeatedly replied, “Nope! He’s just mad…mad I tell you!” Prissy thought they both were full of themselves and wanted ice cream.

Unfortunately, Eli E. Elephant is becoming restless and needs to travel! If you’d like to host Eli for a few days in your town, state, or country, feel free to comment here and I’ll contact you so we can get this elephant back on the road!

Thirty Years a Junkie

One author’s journey – Inspiring!

Andrew Joyce


Compared to some, I’ve lived an exciting life. At least parts of it were. However, compared to others, my life has been humdrum. The only thing I’m satisfied about is that all the drama took place when I was young and able to handle it. That would not be the reality today for I have grown old.

It’s confession time. I’m not looking for absolution. My only intent is to show some of you out there that there is hope. Nothing is forever. Perhaps my story might help you get to the next stage of your life. Maybe not, but I had help getting there, and I’ll tell you about it in a minute. First, a little background. And please, feel free to judge me. You cannot condemn me any more than I have already condemned myself.

When I was kid, I always had a wanderlust. I would see a…

“Amnesia (A Psychological Thriller)” by Kylie Hillman #TeaserTuesday

Amnesia Banner

Dr. Jaxon Ray has only ever wanted one woman. He’s loved her from afar since their Junior School days, worshipping the ground she walks on, intent on having her for his own when the time is right.

Amber St. George isn’t interested in the trappings that come with her family’s wealth. A simple life as a teacher at an underprivileged school, a comfortable home with her lover, and good friends; that’s all she desires.

Once Jax decides it’s time to take what’s his, Amber finds herself at the mercy of a madman. A sociopath with access to the latest neurological advancements, who possesses the ability to use her own mind to keep her captive. Programmed to forget. Reprogrammed as her captor’s perfect partner, Amber’s left with medically-induced amnesia and no idea that she’s in for the fight of her life.

When the people who know you’re missing aren’t on your side, and the love of your life has been led to believe that you’ve turned your back on him, is rescue possible? When you can’t remember the real you, is escape even on the cards?
